Truth and Lies

In a world that is filled with digital pathways, it can become difficult to know what the truth really is. One thing is for sure, either you are a part of the problem or a part of the solution. I don’t know about everybody else, but I try to pass along as much good information as possible, but once a source propagates something false, I unfollow them, and I don’t trust anything else they post. I do this to people, too. Many think it is strange, but I grew up in a different town, and a totally different world.

Thanks to the underground, I function on one currency — trust. There are tangible ways to show it to people in your community. In my local group, we share things — stories, memories, friends, drinks, etc. We toast to love, health, and even spiritual understanding. But, it’s hard to know what’s real, sometimes. My dad always fears when I talk like this, because he had a friend that was “lost” and it didn’t end well for him. Well, that’s not going to happen to me. Most importantly, I love you, Dad!

John 8:32 says, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Are you free today? Have you told the truth? Believe it or not, I didn’t always tell the truth, but I am learning that it is important. That is why I become a Freedom [Writer] — to share the truth. I know some of you don’t like it, but I am not doing it to intentionally make people angry…just aware.

In summary, tell the truth. Even if it is painful or is going to cost you something, the truth and the freedom it brings is worth it. Encourage others in your life to do the same. You may find healing from many past ills. The chatter on social media is fun to me, and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here. It seems like people are waking up, and I am excited for what will happen next, because This Means War. Wagen, over and out.
